It is Construction Company working in The United Arab Emirates in the Middle East and has three branches in there. The organization depends on turnkey contracts as main contractor.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
